Thurman Meet the Candidates Night moderator Lisa Payne of Diamond Point (center) apologizes to the crowd filling the town hall Tuesday Oct. 22 that their questions won't be answered because former supervisor John Haskell didn't show up for the event — he was apparently at home recovering from surgery. The League of Women Voters hosted the event, at the invitation of a Haskell supporter.
